An OK portrait of a GREAT painter

This IS Erin Schechtman, finally my birthday portrait is done.  
The intention to do portraits in the subject's "signature" media nearly hurt me with this one. Why?  I am more of a Draughtsman than I am a Painter.  Don't believe me check out this way to involved under drawing.

Crazy right?  Well after painting shoulder to shoulder with Erin for the last couple years has given me the drive to attempt more paintings.  Erin is what you might call an inspiration, it's hard not to learn from her.  Being in her company has upped all of our games and bolstered our courage to try more!
Everyone should have an Erin in their lives!
Happiest of late birthdays!!!!
